Well, most people who know me would know that I like subdued almost 'faded' colours for my patchwork and quilting, so it may come as a bit of surprise to find out that I recently purchased these fabrics:
What is it for you ask? Well...I am going to keep you in suspense until I have a sneak peak finished to share...few bits and pieces in progress....but none finished....so you will just have to wait!!! :-)
I have been feverishly sewing in the last week and dearly missed my sewing machine when I went away on the weekend to the Taste of Rutherglen visiting many a winery and sampling some very yummy wines (my favourite is St Leonards Muscadello).
What is this I hear you ask? Well, one project that I have completed is the first batch of Whirly-Gigs that I have just to posted to Wendy of 'hARTylittlepeaces'. Above is the scraps left over after much cutting of blocks to size. These are the finished products:
I am so excited by the fabrics I have bought for this swap and look forward to making some more Whirly-Gigs!!!
Another project that I have started is the Pinwheel Quilt-Along over at 'Twiddletails'. I was a little behind in that I had not completed block one when the instructions for block two were posted on her site, but I made up for it tonight. I really enjoyed a sewing evening whilst DH was at SES. I managed to get both blocks A1 and A2 completed!
I have also been working on the easter hunt bags for our niece and nephew. I have completed the stitching for both bags and also designed a name plate for Z.
Just incase you would like to make a nameplate of your own, here are the designs that I have come up with:
I that you like the nameplate designs and can find a use for them! Hopefully I will have the bags finished (well at least 2 of them) by the next post!
Until next time....Keep stitching!
